Game Profile

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, a fast and furious battle to the finish line in this supercharged racer.

In a frantic battle to the chequered flag, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing sees Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in mediaeval castle ramparts, lush rainforests and bustling cities, all taken from the visually rich and varied universes of Sonic and SEGA. Fan favourites such as Dr. Eggman, Tails, AiAi, Amigo and many more will join Sonic in their custom built vehicles, revving their engines and jostling to stay ahead of the pack. Each character will race around the track in cars, planes, motorbikes, and in AiAi’s case – a banana mobile! Secret short cuts, swift handling and avoiding strategically placed obstacles are certainly the best way to get to the top of the podium.

And winning is only part of the fun in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing! Each character has a specific All Star move such as Super Sonic, Banana Blitz and Tails Tornado, allowing a quick way for competitors to get back into the race! Power ups and weapons can also be collected around the tracks and used against the opposition to ensure they don’t become a threat to that number one position… Players can battle it out in single or multiplayer mode, allowing up to four friends to race in frantic split-screen action, or up to eight players to compete online in the ultimate racing showdown.

The first hour or so you spend with Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing, your brain rejects it, telling you it isn’t Mario Kart enough, or it isn’t Sega enough. You’ll wrestle with the wheel and tell yourself you could be playing Mario Kart Wii instead,...

I'll get it for the Wii, but I wonder if the DS version will be worth it. I've been a bit disappointed by Mario Kart DS and Diddy Kong Racing DS. They've given me cramped wrists.

Also, this will be my umpteenth racing game. :) Still, it's the only game worth buying for 2010 IMO.

This is a pretty fun game, got a nice sense of speed. The graphics and framerate are just a bit too choppy in places, though, and I've had a hell of a time trying to play a race online.

This has alot more replayability more than MKW. But I still don't think it's as good as Mario Kart. Maybe only the sense of speed and graphics that are twice better.

Oh wow, I'm extremely disappointed no one has ever been commenting on here or its review alone. Oh well. Still a great Sonic game.
